Summary

This volume presents the proceedings of the conference on "Trends in Mathematical Physics" held at the University of Tennessee. The conference drew international experts from mathematical and computational physics. The following topics were addressed: superstrings and quantum gravity, pattern formation, and crystallographic topology. The cutting-edge research reflected in the extensive surveys in the book are written for a diverse audience.
